yes, he is the one selling it.

and it's not an auction, it's a fixed price.

That original article about the $80,000 bid is pretty sweet. If I had a $100,000 to donate/buy that pistol would I still even live in CT?....OK, I would donate and then leave!

IIRC they used to have this gun on display in their store.

I would think that if they brokered it through somebody like Julia or RIA, in a traditional auction, they would be more likely to realize that price (or higher)... in a much more timely fashion than may end up occurring on an online (particularly fixed price) listing.

(by way of "new math" that looks to be $20k if it sells at $100k).

$80,000 in 1979, adjusted for inflation, is $257,000 today. So he's actually taking a loss.
But I love the spirit!
